January 2022 MarineMax - (NYSE: HZO) $2B Sales
With only 3 months before the boating
season starts, MarineMax general manager for Massachusetts
and Rhode Island
Blake Phillips, is evicting 30 boats from the Quincy, MA location (Bay Pointe Marina) for being “too old”, according to Stu Piaseck marina operations manager.
They probably need to make room for the million dollar boats they plan to sell, and they may be doing it in other locations. With long waiting lists at most marinas
, these boats will literally be left “High and Dry”.
The evictees include long-time customers, veterans, and retirees. Many are unaware because the official notice has not gone out yet, or they plan not to send the renewal notices at all, which is even worse. The list includes boats currently stored in the marina parking lot. Quincy is considered a working class city south of Boston, and the location of the nearby Fore River Shipyard, where 92 Navy
ships were built, including battleships, carriers, heavy and light cruisers, and destroyers.
